Inspired by his desire to create music that is will meaningfully connect with people in a lasting and timeless way.

  "Vesperteen & His “Vesperteam” Are An Unstoppable Force"   "Some joke that there is no such thing as a 'casual Vesperteen fan,' which after seeing his live show at the Roxy last month, is definitely an understatement. The crowd’s reaction is comparable to the moment someone like Matt Healy from the 1975 takes the stage in an arena–except Colin works the stage as both a resident rockstar and a killer-standing-drummer, making a connection with each fan in every room as he converts casual fans into die-hard ones."

  LadyGunn investigates the hidden song campaign for 'It Will Never Be Enough" and interviews fans from around the world who got to hear the song early.   "“So I burned some CD’s with the song and made unique artwork for each city — Columbus, Los Angeles, Chicago, NYC, and London. It was so cool to see people hustling around town to try and get these first. And it was a sweet way to feel the excitement over a brand new song.”
